Hunter Safety Course

Last night began, for me, a two-day experience known as Hunter Safety. I am not required to take this course as I was born before the official cutoff date but I thought there might be some good information to gather and the class was free.

Turns out I was right. Last night I heard from the instructor, a traditional archer, and a game warden (Conservation Enforcement Officer.) Each left me with the same message which was really quite simple:

Respect your surroundings, respect the animals, and respect yourself.

Do these three things and, chances are, you're going to hunt safely and legally.

I also learned a bit about archery golf but that's a topic for another day...

I've got to run, class starts in a little more than an hour and I haven't had my coffee yet.

Thanks for reading,
